Best destination in Europe
Ireland has recently been named the 'best destination in Europe' by US travel publication Travel Weekly. This is the third year in a row. More tourists visited Ireland in 2016 than ever before and Ireland is on course for nine million visitors in 2019 (Source CSO). American and Canadian tourists (around 1.6 million) delivered 1.4 billion Euros of revenue to the Irish economy in 2016 and this figure is set to rise despite concerns such as Brexit.
Our mission at gotoireland.today is to promote Ireland to all English speaking countries around the world and provide quality, informative tourist information to visitors.
gotoireland.today is managed and owned by an Irishman, John Byrne from Dublin who now lives in County Cavan.
We encouarge you to book direct with the hotel and to help you do this, we have provided links to their websites. Booking engines such as Booking.com take as much as 15% in commission from the hotel. This can really eat into any profit margin that a small hotel might make on a room and often you will get a better rate by booking direct.
